I am in the middle of week 2 of Zoloft at 100mg/day, and have had extreme fatigue the past 4 days.

Does this go away?

Welcome to HW.....and our lil family
From what others have posted YES it can cause extreme fatigue or go the other way make you hyper....it takes OR can take up to 4 to 6 weeks for this med to totally kick in and start to work ..........
I believe it depends on the person........
Are you on a benzo like Xanax or valium,ativan ect as well or just the zoloft????????

I am sure glad you found us here at HW and hoping that you do see the caring and support there is here .......

Go to Resources in yellow at side as well you can read on some back pages other threads about this or anything else you may want to know

If not then start another thread .........like you did here asking your questions..........

Again Welcome and STAY with us ..........LYN

**BTW** there are many self help techniques to learn and they do help you get theu this along with the meds such as Relaxation........Meditation..Cognitive behavioural Therapy ( free online one) and others I am sure ppl will post to help you lout

Hi Solid71
 
Welcome to Healing well.  You have found a great place to gain advice on a lot of different issues/topics.  I too agree with Lyn about this.  I used to be on Zoloft and when I first started it, I was very tired, but eventually it did subside.
 
Again, a warm welcome to the HW family and keep us posted on how things are going for you.

Thanks Wen.
How long did it take to subside?
 
Also...how did Zoloft work for you overall?

It's been quite awhile since I've taken Zoloft but it took about 3-4 weeks before the extreme fatigue subsided.  Overall it worked fine for me, but my symptoms intensified greatly and the Zoloft no longer worked for me even at a higher dose, so I was put on something else.  The fatigue was the only side effect I experienced while on the Zoloft.
 
Hope this helps you!!
